Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Aaaah! My son’s English teacher is a hippie (non-partisan)

Since the school year started, my son has accused his English teacher of being a hippie. Turns out the guy likes to teach the gray, you know, asking questions that don’t have clear answers. Like making them think. I pick up my kid yesterday and he is freaking out. You gotta see this. Shows me a picture that he took. Turns out the guy was making them analyze ‘All Along the Watchtower’ and he was wearing a Dead tee. Who would have thunk it?

Have a lovely partisan day and vote your guts out.

Labs in the field today, waddling around with my bum knee and bad back, BUT I was wearing one of my only remaining DEAD shirts (dancing skeletons tipping hat or hats? can't recall for sure).

No one, and I mean NO ONE, noticed...lots of birds, and a coyote hunting chuckwallas in crevices! Very cool...

EDIT: Bill, that could get me in trouble, right? I better be more careful or they'll make me open a Facebook account...then I'll get fired when they find out I have friends like you? Nah, I am incriminating enough; but thx for noticing--I must've been under the influence when I posted that...

That sounds like a fun field trip. I hunted chuckwallas as a kid in the Mohave, Fort Erwin area, Goldstone I think. Tough little bugggers. Puffin up in those crevices, never did get one. I probably looked like one of those coyotes.

"when they are 18 or 19, have less clothing on than you could fashion out of my DEAD t-shirt,"

Bill with the pics again .
Is that an fairly accurate representation ? The missing drawers make for easy access or exit .

that's just my "dirty old man" emoticon

"Is that an fairly accurate representation ?"

Not really. This is closer to the real me...
(I have more hair, less beard and am a bit heavier.)

BTW, I WAS an English teacher many years ago

"The missing drawers make for easy access or exit ."

quick mooning is the primary reason....

and reduced laundry costs

Great point -- "Like making them [kids] think [for themselves]" -- bingo!!!

Why think for yourself, or listen to a "teacher," when kids or anyone these days can just "google-search" for the answers, instead?

The problem with Google

I had a teacher like that in high school. I think that's pretty common. He didn't wear tie-dyes, but his hippiness was never in question. I'm also sure that I did some Rock-Lit type stuff in other English classes. A good way to connect with kids that otherwise might not give a damn about poetry or literature.
